World premiere: Jan Müller-Wieland’s “Pas de deux” in Munich

Jan Müller-Wieland’s new chamber work “Pas de deux” for two flutes (alto flutes), three string players and vibraphone will receive its world premiere on 2 July 2009 in Munich. The performance with flutists Marianne Henkel-Adorján and András Adorján with the Octopus Ensemble under the direction of Konstantia Gourzi will take place in the Pinakothek der Moderne (Modern Art Museum). The concert is part of the series “Musik in Kunstareal” (MIK) (“Music in the Art Environment”).

The composer comments on his work as follows:

“It is an imaginary dance. A kind of instrumental ballet scene. Two flutes (doubling alto flutes) are a dancing pair. A vibraphone accompanies them, like a leftover from a dance-music band. Three string players are heard more or less from afar, as if from another room. They are always very muted in their tone, however, due to heavy metal dampers. The whole work is basically about soft sounds, about mildness in general. About intimacy and confidential matters. Tabori said, “Take nothing with you, travel lightly.”
